now, we're counting down to tonight's presidential debate. mitt romney's motorcade just pulled up at the debate hall. president obama's expected to arrive in denver any minute as well. we'll be talking with top supporters of each candidate. the former new york city mayor rudy giuliani, he'll join us live this hour. also we'll be hearing from both candidates' wives in special cnn interviews. today, by the way, is the obama's 20th wedding anniversary. so what's it like spending the night with the romneys? i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> 34 days from the presidential election but much more importantly right now at least right now we've reached what may be the most decisive night of the 2012 campaign, the first presidential debate at the university of denver. after weeks of downplaying expectations, mitt romney's campaign insiders are finally opening up about what they really think can be accomplished tonight. cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta is in denver getting ready to set the scene. jim. >> reporter: wolf, the romney campaign sees the polls m
's at 51%. mitt romney is at 43%. both campaigns think this one is getting more difficult by the moment for mitt romney to win. however -- and this is where it gets fascinating -- in virginia, the president's lead has shrunk to just two points, within the margin of error. last month president obama led by five points there. in florida, mitt romney has closed the gap as well. he's now statistically tied in the state of florida. it is a one-point lead. 47%-46%. al hunt, it is fascinating. ohio seems to be on its own as far as the swing states go. but we could show other swing state polls in colorado, in nevada, in north carolina. these states are really getting tight, to such a degree that a great performance by romney tonight could change the dynamic. >> conceivably, but i don't think it's quite that close yet. i think you certainly see it, as you point out, in florida and virginia. you don't see it in ohio. wisconsin it looks like it's actually widening. iowa, it's four to six. and the problem by taking michigan and pennsylvania off the table, which really the romney people have done de
debate. almost 60 million people watched mitt romney crush president obama last night. twitter blew up, biggest political night ever. so what did you guys think? let's start it out. polling, you were excited last night? >> it was great. twitter was going crazy. honestly, mitt romney made president obama look silly and small. he was great. mitt romney was. president obama was bumbling. he looked like he didn't want to be there. we heard all those analogies today. but i found it interesting that michael moore blamed john kerry, the debate prep guy. david axelrod blamed jim lehrer. al gore blamed the altitude. but nobody -- nobody blamed the president for being unprepared and outclassed by mitt romney last night. >> dana, take us deep into the psychology. what was going on? he looked like a man defeated. >> he sort of faded into the background initially. then i thought maybe it will get better. at the one hour mark, i thought wow, this is over. i thought romney was very bold. but he was also something different that he was fresh. and there is a huge gulf between the man that had been pain

. the headline "go large, mitt." listen to this line. it makes you think how far ahead romney would be if he were actually running a campaign, but his unwillingness to go big, to go for the larger argument, is simply astonishing. and, mark, charles goes on to say what many conservatives have said over the past several weeks. he's behind and he continues to play small. >> he does, and he continues to have days that don't really amount to much. yesterday they had a sort of a veterans message and an economy message during events in virginia but they can't wait for just the debates. i think conservatives want to see not just big events in terms of big ideas but big events that grab the nation's attention. the romney campaign is frustrated because they say all the press asks them about is process but that's par for the course and true in every campaign i've ever covered, the press will talk about process particularly polls. mitt romney, conservatives are waiting for him to be big in events, big in message, big in personality. it seems like right now the campaign is waiting for him to do that in the de

performance. >> governor romney may dance around the position, but if you want to be president you owe the american people the truth. >> gretchen: who is the one really lying? >> steve: meanwhile thank goodness for al gore . he explains why the president flopped out. >> you go to 5,000 feet and only a few hours to adjust. >> steve: isn't he the guy who invented the intim ator. blame it on the thin air . we'll tell you that story. >> brian: joe biden, take another gaffe. >> you guys sit down if you have a seat. guyings, i didn't realize you didn't have seats, i apologize . my mother would kill me if a woman was standing this long. i apologize . >> brian: another instant biden classic coming to you and what he said later on is note worthy especially to paul ryan who will be debating him shortly . -- shortly.

and was covered extensively at the time. they blame mitt romney and his allies. the only thing wrong about this is we should -- they call these desperate attacks. bill: we are going to talk to ben lebolt later in the hour. their is enormous pressure on both sides. bret baier is the anchor of special report. the cohost of tonight's special debate coverage on the fox news channel. here is the figure. what you are hear being how this speech plays into tonight's debate if at all. >> reporter: here on the ground's not factoring in as far as the debate prep, as far as being a factor in the debate. it's not believed to be a question. it's probably not going to be something that's brought up by one of the two candidates. is it setting the table? is it what some people are talking about? i'm standing on a platform with a lot of different media and everybody next to me talking about it this morning. does that affect things? sure. does it bring reverend jeremiah wright back into the picture? yes. is that a bad fling for the obama campaign? probably. because as you remember he was the pastor for then
. just hours before barack obama and mitt romney's first head-to-head primetime face-off. >>> oh,man. disaster, but it's not accident. crash cameras show you what it could be like upon a doomed jet liner. >>> and a florida woman's close encounter with a protected mammal. you know this could land her in jail? >> that's a costly picture right there. >> oh, my goodness. good morning to you. thank you for being with us. welcome to "early start." i'm zoraida sambolin. >> i'm john berman. it is 5:00 a.m. in the east. the big story this morning, it is go time. in just 16 hours all eyes will be on denver for the first presidential debate. president obama will be making his case for four more years and mitt romney trying to convince the country he is the better man for the job. now, right now it looks like voters need convincing on both sides because in a brand new cnn poll of polls it shows a very close race. the president maintaining a razor-thin three-point lead with a month to go at this point. our cnn political director mark preston is live from denver right in the middle of it all.
politics new this morning, mitt romney says he's looking forward to the upcoming presidential debates, first one's on wednesday. >> i think it will be a good chance for the president and for me to have a conversation with the american people about our respective views. and i think that will give people a chance to understand where we actually stand. >> paul ryan is in new hampshire today. the republican vice presidential nominee will hold a rally in the city of derry in just a few hours. meanwhile, vice president biden is in the battleground state of florida. he's going to attend a campaign event in fort myers this morning. on friday he met with seniors at a retirement village in boca raton. >> governor romney's plan goes into effect it can mean that everyone, every one of you, would be paying more on -- taxes on your social security. >> michelle obama is encouraging young voters to get to the polls. like right now. the first lady spoke to college students in iowa friday, urging them to go into nearby early voting booths to cast their ballots. >> you got a whole month to make it happe

's be fair here. governor romney has laid out a direction and a vision for the direction of this country. he's not an accountant. he's not going to go line by line as much as you'd like him to do through the budget. but let's hold the president to the same standard and criticize him as well. >>> good morning, it is monday, october 1st. it's october, everybody. welcome to "morning joe." >> yeah, you know who's glad september's over? >> who? >> the jets. holy cow! >> i thought you were going to say mitt romney. with us on set, we have msnbc and "time" senior political editor mark halperin and national affairs editor for "new york" magazine john heilemann. guys. hi, willie. >> hello. >> it's not as bad as being a red sox fan, but if you're a jets fan right now, holy cow! tebow's like, you know, he's getting ready. >> he should have been ready. i don't know why they kept sanchez in the whole game. 103 yards, less than 50% passing, one interception and frankly wasn't close. it was a strange thing to watch. >> it was absolutely brutal. and then, of course, the yankees, man. that playoff race. >> o
take off. >> steve: i hate when that happens. one day until the presidential debate and mitt romney gets in this last minute dig . >> i will make sure we get resources in alaska and by the way, i will get pipe line from canada if i have to build it myself. >> steve: will lines like that work in the debate tomorrow night? it may depend on president obama's achilles hill. >> brian: unlike me he can build something because he knows how to work a ratchet gun. military faces lay offs. it is our money. "fox and friends" starts right now. ♪ note ♪ "fox and friends". >> steve: welcome back to studio e live from midtown manhattan and brian welcome back. >> brian: you want to feel old in >> steve: sure. when i started here my son was six months old and yesterday was his 16th birth >> gretchen: does he have his driver's license. >> brian: he has his her mitt. >> steve: you started with me, you got old. remember when sally came to the studio in a stroller. she is a sophmore in smu in dallas, texas. >> brian: i am excited about the pregame show to debate number one. >> gretchen: we have a
, by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. [cheers and applause] of course, the middle clationz class has been buried, they are buried by regulations and buried by taxes and borrowing, they are being buried by the obama administration's economic failures. >> greta: so will the obama campaign take a political hit with that one, mr. speaker? it's dangerous to talk these days? >> look, it's pretty hard to take anything joe biden says seriously. but if you look at it from -- there are two parts to t. he admits that in the last four years, that's the obama years, the middle class has been buried. highest price of gasoline in the history. hits the middle class. the unemployment rate hits the middle class. the debt being piled up, hits the middle class. but then he goes on to say something which is frankly nutty. no republican is proposing a tax increase in the middle class. none, zero. there are no proposals to raise taxes on the middle class. who is proposing to raise taxes? obama? who has a whole range of tax increases in obamacare? obam a. biden pivots and charges the repu
. thank you. >> governor romney fallen behind in the national polls. new polls out this morning iowa and ohio behind in both. we were laughing about the expectations setting on both sides but, governor romney has to shake things up, wednesday night, doesn't he. >> he is going to. every time mitt romney has been confronted in this campaign with one of these moments he has come through in a debate and performed extraordinarily well, laying out his vision very clearly and also contrasting himself and his vision with whoever his opponent was at that time. i have absolute confidence, george, all you will be shaking your head it is a brand new race. jenna: new jersey governor chris christie, making a bold prediction, how about that? the bold prediction related to the first presidential debate saying governor mitt romney's performance against the president could very well change the entire race. but how important are presidential debates and how much do they really shape the outcome in november? we heard a lot. joining me someone who has done research on polling impact of past debates. larr
? >> 14% is the number. 23 million is the number quoted by governor romney during the debate. it is a grim employment situation any which way you slice it. bill: but now you're still now below the big number. you're below 8%. so to the politics on this now? >> that is where some of the mistrust comes in. how convenient the rate drops below 8% first time in 43 months, five weeks before the election. there is some mistrust of these numbers along with the contradiction between 873,000 people found work, only 114,000 new jobs. mistrust of this report. bill: on that point it will be interesting to see how president obama plays this in fairfax, virginia later today. how mitt romney responds. he is in virginia, southwestern part of the state. also in florida. >> i suspect the president will play it big, we're going in the right direction. look at this 7.8%. how governor romney will respond i don't know. bill: stuart, 9:20 a.m.. this will pop up again. martha: let's get context of this. back in december 2007, when the recession began the unemployment rate was 5%. in october of 2009, that is the pe
's debate. more importantly, this is a stage where president obama and governor mitt romney will hopefully define their positions on the key domestic issues facing our nation. that's what's on the agenda for this debate tonight; jobs, the economy, health care. but first, a new distraction for the obama campaign during a critical week. it comes in the form of a video released by "the daily caller" of then-presidential candidate barack obama back in 2007. in it he speaks to a group mostly made up of black pastors. his speech got some coverage at the time he delivered it, but his prepared remarks did not include some of the off-the-cuff, off-prompter moments, if you will, alluding to alleged racism to hurricane katrina and spending decisions made by our elected leaders. our chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live in washington with more. mike? >> reporter: hi, megyn. the tone has attracted some attention with then-candidate obama sounding different as he spoke to a large group of african-american religious leaders in virginia. one major topic was mr. obama trying to contrast th
romney will have the chance to answer questions that they themselves have been somewhat reluctant to answer. we're going to run through some of the big ones keeping them honest. first, we have late polling. new cnn numbers that show the race tightening. president obama still leads 50% to 47%. the three-point gap is within the poll's margin of error. mr. obama got a four-point bounce to put him in the lead. the president's favorable rating meantime remains above the crucial 50% mark at 52%. mr. romney is close but still in negative territory at 49%. he enjoys an edge on handling the deficit and joblessness, but trails on virtually every other big issue, including medicare, taxes and foreign policy. keeping them honest, when it comes to some of those issues, both candidates have come up short either on specifics or credibility. issues like cutting taxes without ballooning the deficit or burdening the middle class. the romney campaign has been asked again and again for specifics. here's runningmate paul ryan just yesterday on fox news. >> there's been a traditional democrat and repub
>>> that's it for us. "early start" begins now. see you later tonight. >>> mitt romney changing positions. the candidate now calls his 47% comments completely wrong. >> travel alert. flights scrubbed, more cancellations at american airlines as mechanics fix a serious safety flaw in half its fleet of 757s. >>> gas prices, some pumps shut down among a major fuel shortage in one state. good morning to you. welcome to "early start." we're happy you're with us, i'm zoraida sambolin. >> and i'm john berman. it's 5:00 a.m. in the east. >>> it's good to be mitt right now. romney is hitting the battlegrounds and hammering away at the president. >> here's the kicker. remember that hidden camera video of romney's controversial 47% remark? >> 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. 47% are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to provide for them, belief they're entitled to health care, food, housing, you name it. they will vote for this president no matter what. >> remember that.
of the foreign policy is unravelling before our eyes on the tv screen. what mitt romney is going to continue to do a land a vision for foreign policy one american strength verses what i would articulate the president's policy is one of weakness. we are seeing the ugly fruits of the obama foreign policy unravel around the world on our tv screens. >>> the vice presidential hopeful also discussing the race for the white house and his and mitt romney's current standings in the polls giving his take on why the republican ticket is trailing behind. >>> the question given all of that, why are you and romney losing at this? >> we are going to win this race. given that we are going to win this race. >> you are not at this point. you are losing. >> we can debate polls. i can tell you this. the president is offering 4 more years of the same. the president has been very good at distorting the issue and disguising the truth. he has been very good at distracting people. kaent run on hope and change any more so he's running on division, distraction, distortion to try to win election by default. we are goin
with a president romney and foreign policy and next four years with a president obama foreign colorado. what do you foresee as the difference and where are they similar? >> oh, i think the difference will be significant. normally the republican and the democratic party have really within wibeen within the 40 yaro use a seasonal figure of speech. in the case of this president, we're not. he's way, way over in terms of the policy. governor romney without doubt understands that our country is exceptional. he recognizes the role we've played in the world. he believes the world is a better place if we're a participant in that world, and recognizes that it is not for us to go around the world apologizing and ringing our hands. what's called the arab spring is something happening in the islamic world. it's not arab only, because it's happening in a good many other countries as you know well. it's not spring, but it's summer and fall. it's going to be winter. it is a significant shift on the part of a lot of people in a lot of countries, who are encouraged and see the rise of islamist nonsecular forces in
in the rockies, martha. >> yes, it is a practice run. president obama and mitt romney, all part of the preparations for the first debate . in a few hours it will be the real thing and it is live in denver. >> security preparation is at the highest level in denver as the president and the man who hopes to take his job will be in the same room at the same time. something that rarely ever happens. we can show you inside of the university of denver. things are coming along as the staff set the stage for the event. the cand dates are expected to have walk throughs later on today. governor romney took to practicing with ohio senator rob portman. they stopped by chipolte for lunch. his opponents was at the hoover dam. he's been in a debate camp with john kerry. one thing to consider as we head in tonight. early voting is underway in some states and that raises the stakes. >> the first debate is a huge deal . some people can go out and vote the next day. in colorado, people can vote the next week before the other debates even occurred. if there is an immediate affect you will see it in
